Strolling Through Central Park: Part 1

Central Park is such an iconic part of NYC. It’s so much bigger than people think so I figured I would make my strolls through Central Park into multiple posts. There’s so much to do and see there. We stayed along the east side on our stroll this day. A few weekends ago Jon and…

Lyssy’s Eats: Dô Cookie Dough Confections

Last summer I had heard about a magical place that had edible cookie dough in NYC. I looked at their instagram and knew I had to go there. When I visited Jon in September we tried to go, but the line was across the street and around the corner 😫. For the sake of our…

Weekly Workouts 7/8 – 7/15

Hi friends, hope you all had a great weekend! We had a nice and relaxing weekend and got some meal preps and cleaning done. We tried finding a couch but still haven’t had any luck. Any suggestions?? I had some great workouts this week. I deadlifted my personal record for deadlifts yesterday and it felt…

Lyssy’s Eats: Voodoo Donuts

I can’t believe it’s been over two months since my Portland Trip!! (If you missed it you can catch up Day 1 & 2, Day 3, and Last days) I’ve heard about Vodoo Donuts for years, and had to go when I went to Portland. I’m more of an ice cream kinda person, than donut,…

First Visit Back to Michigan: Part II

If you missed part one of my first visit home (still sounds weird!) you can read it here. Saturday was my favorite day of the trip because our lake has an annual fireworks show and we have my aunt and uncles over. My sister also flew in from Portland, so the whole family was together…

Weekly Workouts 7/1 – 7/8

Happy Monday! I’m writing this post from my new MacBook Pro! My old one would has been with me for eight years, so it was finally time to upgrade. We went to the Apple store this weekend and picked it up. The store was right by Central Park and was so crowded! It was a…

First Visit Back to Michigan: Part 1

It’s so weird to think that I’m visiting now when I come back home, but I was so excited to go back home to Michigan with Jon and celebrate the Fourth of July. I’ve been away for five weeks so far, the time has really flown by! We got up early and lifted before getting…

Jon’s Birthday in NYC!

Jon’s birthday was on a Monday (June 25th), so we decided to celebrate the weekend before. In the morning we met our friends and lifted with them. I did some deadlifts while Jon benched with his bros. We went to Insomnia Cookies afterwards because I was starting to get hangry! We got the peanut butter…

Weekly Workouts 6/25 – 7/1

This week was my last ever lift at Lifetime Fitness and I was quite sad, it’s been my favorite gym that I’ve belonged to. Jon and I both benched and had decent workouts. We were still recovering from the stomach bug and missed workouts so weren’t on our “A game”. Now that I’m healthy and…
